Hi guys,
is there a way to identify incoming connection (IP address of the sender)?

Our SFTP Server runs on port 22. However when it is idle (all clients are turned off), it receives some connections which cannot be properly closed. When number of those connections reaches 20, the Server won't accept any other connections. We don't know where they come from.

Is it possible to use port other than 22?

Thank you for contacting us.

Yes you can use a port other than 22. However our SFTP server component doesn't deal with network so its your job to close these connections.
